Question about CookTek 14 in. MC-2500 Electric Cooktop
Thanks for using FixYa. Please make sure that the cooktop has a dedicated 15-amp line. The cook top needs 13 amps to operate and should be on a 15 amp dedicated circuit. If the circuit is not 15 amps or there are other electrical draws on the circuit, the unit is not getting enough power. The fuse may need to be changed. The fuse is a 250V ceramic, 20-amp fuse. It is always recommended to contact a qualified repair tech for changing the fuse as this will solve the problem and is much more economical than sending the cooktop in for diagnosis.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

When you used all elements the power supply wire have been
gone to the maximum current absorbed so to the maximum heat. When the cook top
is new it can withstand this heat but due to long time used now you have burned
out wires and probably to junction point. So now the power supply wire is
burned and is open circuit thus not any power to the heater. The wires have
just open circuit and they don't touch each other or the metal body of the cook
top that is why you don't have the circuit breaker fuse to trip off. So now you
need to disassemble the cook top and you will very easily find the burn point
which should be melded and burned black and replace all parts that they have
been burned with new one.
Here is the link where you find the parts layout, the wiring
diagram and also order any parts you might need.
Also just for safety, avoid to use all four heater at the
same time in the future.
